Financial Learning Experience

About FLE

The Financial Learning Experience is a two-hour event taught throughout the nation and world!  The FLE was developed from Joseph Sangl’s book, I Was Broke. Now I’m Not., and it has equipped people to accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances.

This high-energy, inspirational, and highly practical class is taught by a member of the IWBNIN team who is LIVING THIS!  Some common statements overheard after the FLE are:

  • “I can’t believe that I just sat through an event where I was taught about money – and I had a BLAST!”
  • “For the first time in my life, I really feel like I understand how I can win with my money!”
  • “I can’t believe how easy the tools are to use – and I can’t believe they are FREE!”

This event has been taught in a variety of settings, but results are maximized when it is delivered as part of a full partnership with IWBNIN.  Here are times that have worked extremely well.

  • Invite the community – EVERYONE has money questions!

Praise for FLE
In my opinion Joe is the best that there is when it comes to teaching people HOW to get out of debt and begin to honor God with the money He has blessed them with.  His teaching is both biblical and practical and can help ANYONE…regardless of their financial condition.
– Perry Noble, Pastor of NewSpring Church

“Joseph Sangl spoke … and did a phenomenal job – I know he rocked my world – and the Financial Learning Experience was absolutely incredible!
– Tadd Grandstaff, Pastor of Hope Church

Joe Sangl did a fantastic job communicating to our people about winning with finances.  Joe eats, sleeps, and breathes this stuff.  He started the day at 7:30AM, did two services, counseled three couples this afternoon, and then closed out the day with a two hour seminar …  Joe is a highly caffeinated guy.  Every church needs to have Joe come and speak to your people.  I’m glad we did.
– Jeff Kapusta, Pastor of Lifepoint Church

Joe is … BY FAR, is the most engaging and knowledgeable speaker on finances I’ve ever heard.
– Jeff Maness, Pastor of Element Church
